More Fresh Vintage

Here are two other cards we made on Sunday at the cardmaking day that I held at my house.  I decided to use the Fresh Vintage stamp set again, but only using 'In Colors'.  The 'In Colors' are colours that only hang around for 2 years and then they are gone forever!  The colours are ones that I would not normally use- it's taken me months to use the Calypso Coral!  I also got to use my new postage punch, which I love.
I did a new 'thing' with the ribbon.  I put 'sticky strip' on the ribon itself and then folded it together, then laid out some more sticky strip to attach it to the card.  Normal tape will not hold it.  I put the cardstock through the Big Shot using the Square Lattice Textrured Impressions Embossing Folders.  Here are close ups of the 2 cards.

Fresh Vintage

Fresh Vintage is a beautiful Stamp set that is free when you spend $100 on Stampin'Up! products.  The special only lasts 'til the end of this month, so let me know if you'd like to put an order in. 

For this card, I used one of my favourtite colours- Concord Crush, as I think it is so striking against the white.  The greeting is from a staple stamp set called Sincere salutations.  I used the oval punch for the greeting and punched out 2 ovals in the concord Crush which I used to mat the greeting.  We had a lot of fun making these in all sorts of colours at the cardmaking day at my house on Sunday.

Scrapbooking with Stampin'Up!

As you may already know, scrapbooking was my first love (and you never really get over your first love!).  I went on a scrapbooking weekend last weekend and had the best time- staying awake 'til 2am!  Who knew people would get such joy out of scrapbooking for 3 days and nights!

I wanted to show you how I use my Stampin'Up! supplies in my scrapbooking.  On this weekend I used the Stampin'Up! punches a lot as they are great for using up your scraps.
